Mandy Kahn

Mandy Kahn is the author of the poetry collection Math, Heaven, Time. In January 2016, former US Poet Laureate Ted Kooser featured a poem from the collection, “At the Dorm,” in his syndicated newspaper column, American Life in Poetry. She was one of several librettists who wrote the text for the critically acclaimed opera-in-cars, Hopscotch; her libretto for the project was subsequently quoted in The New Yorker. In addition to her frequent collaborations with composers, Kahn has written poetry to accompany new works of contemporary dance, film, performance, and fine art. She is coauthor, with Aaron Rose, of the nonfiction book Collage Culture: Examining the 21st Century’s Identity Crisis, which features graphic design by Brian Roettinger. Collage Culture was simultaneously released as a record that pairs readings of the book’s texts with a score by the band No Age. (Photo by Autumn de Wilde.)
